Q #184–Has anybody ever done the home delivery of “ugly” fruits and veggies thing, and how was it?

I was browsing for staples online for my pantries (since I finally have some slightly disposable income, I felt it was a good time to stock up) and adjusting my renewed subscription to Thrive Market (love their organic stuff, it brings out my experimental side). I don't know how, but somehow I saw an ad … Continue reading Q #184–Has anybody ever done the home delivery of “ugly” fruits and veggies thing, and how was it?

Blitz Q# 183: Have you ever had a small thing happen that makes you question your sanity… for a few hours at least?

This one's mine: Have you ever had one of those mornings where your alarm clock goes off, so you turn it off, lay there a minute, then start going about your morning routine. Then, after (what feels like) a few minutes to half an hour later, the alarm clock goes off FOR REAL? And then … Continue reading Blitz Q# 183: Have you ever had a small thing happen that makes you question your sanity… for a few hours at least?

Blitz Q #182: Which part (of the cheating) was the “mistake”?

This is a question I'd love to ask when it comes to infidelity. How many times has the story come about, in movies, Reddit stories, anecdotes, etc.? Someone comes home, hears noises/music, follows it, finds their significant other in bed with another person. And then the cheater says something like: "Omg, omg, omg, I'm sorry, … Continue reading Blitz Q #182: Which part (of the cheating) was the “mistake”?

Q#181: To shave or not to shave (my head, as a woman, while job searching), that is the question…

Okay, my neck of the woods is under a heat advisory for the 3rd day in a row. Can't even take the dogs out before 7:45 pm because it's too freaking hot outside. And worse, my hair has been growing back the past few months, thick as always, but looks awful thanks to the big … Continue reading Q#181: To shave or not to shave (my head, as a woman, while job searching), that is the question…

Blitz Q #180: As “pro-lifers” cheer Roe v. Wade’s demise, how do you think they will react to the sudden surge of men making appointments for vasectomies?

This whole Roe v Wade smashing just pisses me off and has left me sour the past few weeks. But at the same time, when I saw this article all over the social media feeds, I started to smile a bit, because I can't help but picture the faces of the Religious Right and pro-life-birth … Continue reading Blitz Q #180: As “pro-lifers” cheer Roe v. Wade’s demise, how do you think they will react to the sudden surge of men making appointments for vasectomies?

Borrowed Q #179: Why does homemade loaf bread look & feel NOTHING like what I find in the bakery or bread aisle at the grocery store?

I've been doing some canning (will tell you more about the results later) and taking a step back from that to look for jobs and look at bread recipes, too. Yes, I'm rather boring these days. But this question kept popping in my head when I realized if I go back to making bread, I'd … Continue reading Borrowed Q #179: Why does homemade loaf bread look & feel NOTHING like what I find in the bakery or bread aisle at the grocery store?

Q #178– If you’ve tried canning your own food, did it really help with expenses & do you think it’s really worth it today?

I guess this is the perfect corollary to my previous question about freezing and batch cooking, and makes more sense for me to try as a long-term solution to keeping food handy and keeping costs down. At least, that's the theory. What really made me think hard about it was the fact that having a … Continue reading Q #178– If you’ve tried canning your own food, did it really help with expenses & do you think it’s really worth it today?

Q#177–Have you ever tried “batch cooking” a month’s worth of reheat-able meals, & how did that work out?

I was going back and forth working on financial crap (commence with the weeping, wailing, gnashing of teeth... and junk food consumption... dammit) and listening to some Reddit advice threads on YouTube. (Sometimes it's enlightening, sometimes it's trashy junk food for the brain... especially the caught "SO" cheating stories. Today I needed both after a … Continue reading Q#177–Have you ever tried “batch cooking” a month’s worth of reheat-able meals, & how did that work out?

Q#176: What are some good home remedies that can PREVENT chafing & other irritations during exercise (& not ruin your clothes or budget)?

Before anyone says anything, yes, I have several sticks of anti-chafe balm in my drawer. SEVERAL. However, like most anything meant to help with fitness or sports, it's gonna run the price up pretty bad. Though it's true a little can go a long way, they're gonna run out eventually and I hate the idea … Continue reading Q#176: What are some good home remedies that can PREVENT chafing & other irritations during exercise (& not ruin your clothes or budget)?

A mile & 3/4 recap: questions from the past year & change…

Every time I hit the quarter mark, I try to compile the lists in case you’re wondering (like I often do) the weird places my noggin likes to take me. Also, considering how the past year and change have gone (and the crazy times before... and more to come), maybe this’ll be a silly little … Continue reading A mile & 3/4 recap: questions from the past year & change…
